Found this a few days ago and my kids and I have been putting googly eyes on everything in the house since.

Yeah, I did not know this was a thing, but rather than being sad that I am no longer original, I am pleased because googly eyes are awesome.

I recently went around the senior citizen residence where my mom lives and put googly eyes on all sorts of stuff. The residents have been having a ball spotting them ever since.

Googly eyes improve (nearly) everything.

When I read the post title, I immediately thought of this recent post.

I was at a funeral a few weeks ago for an interesting man. He's an old school veteran, actually an Atomic veteran. He was my welding instructor. Seems he likes to play pranks. One of the stories was that he would bring his granddaughter to the foodstore and say "You take the top and I'll take the bottom" and they would sharpie marker little Hitler moustaches on all the cats on the cat food containers.

The googly eyes are tough to see in this picture, but I can assure you they are there.

WHERE CAN I BUY GOOGLY EYES.

Dublin could use some eye-bombing action.

Googly eyes may be purchased in bulk at any shop catering to crafters. Be sure to pick up self-adhesive magnets and re-usable glue tacks at the same time.

I can't help but think of this, which is sort of the crude, cave painting version.

Just a quick note, don't get caught "tampering" with the fire extinguishers in a large office building. Trust me. They don't care how cute you're being. They'll call the cops.

amazon sells 100-packs of self-adhesive googly eyes to which i am too lazy to link
